Special Issue "Cybersecurity"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 September 2020).
Interests: cybersecurity; machine learning; information extraction
We are inviting submissions to the Special Issue titled “Cybersecurity”.
Cybersecurity is no longer a topic of interest only for computer scientists and engineers. Countless firms and companies are routinely experiencing major losses due to data breaches and the inability to execute their operations due to cyberattacks. Public services and research institutions are also constantly affected by the same issues. We invite submissions exploring not only defensive tools and mechanisms, but also proposals for assessing exposure to cyberattacks and for promoting a tradeoff between security, costs, and usability that is more aligned with the public interest. Both theoretical and experimental studies are welcome, as well as case studies, papers dealing with systematization of knowledge, and survey papers.
